A very warm welcome to the newest top 10 player: John Isner

He is guranteed the number 10 spot after beating Djokovic. Could get the 8 spot if he wins the final!

Live ranking


Roger Federer | Benoît Paire| Stanislas Wawrinka | Nick Kyrgios

Here's hoping he cracks the top 8 tomorrow then! One of the really nice guys on the tour who has worked on his footwork and groundies so much in the past few years. The man has rightly earned his spot in the top ten.

I wasn´t thinking at beginning of season he will make it this season and he surprised me i think he will be 8th, RAfa won´t stop him for sure and Roger won´t make it through Rafa.

Saw it coming. With a serve like his (and with a little dedication to the game) it was only a matter of time.

Re: A very warm welcome to the newest top 10 player: John Isner

He is gonna win tomorrow too - nobody is returning that serve on these high bouncing courts. He seems to be in form of his life as well, so him reaching TOP 5 is not out of the question either

Awesome. Great achievement.

Would be awesome if he wins tomorrow, we would finally have a good top 8 without that mug named Fish there.

Re: A very warm welcome to the newest top 10 player: John Isner

I agree with a lot of people that his game isn't attractive, but he for sure isn't a mug or clown, which even in the top 10 can be rare.

Loveable character, wish him all the best.

Congrats to Isner. Clutch performance. Don't care for his game at all, but he is by far the most likable of the Americans

With his last impressive wins over Federer and Djokovic it's a well deserved achievement.

31st Top 10 player of the United States in the Open Era.

Re: A very warm welcome to the newest top 10 player: John Isner

Absolutely deserved

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!
